Chip sector to get US$100b infusion

CHINA aims to invest US$100 billion in its semiconductor industry over the next few years to meet surging domestic demand and also as part of its technology upgrading efforts, research firm Bain said yesterday.

By 2020, about 55 percent of the world’s memory, logic and analog chips are destined to flow to (or through) China. The country now only produces about 15 percent of these chips, up from about 10 percent a few years ago. But the higher production still marks a long way from closing the widening gap between supply and demand, according to Bain.

Bain also predicts that electric cars and new energy projects like smart grid are likely to fuel a rising amount of highly-advanced and next-generation chips.
